This food is scientifically formulated for small breed dogs that are over over 8 years of age. The Royal Canin Mini range is recommended for small breeds with an adult weight of up to 10kg. It contains a patented blend of antioxidants that helps to fight the first signs of ageing. Due to its enhanced palatability, it is suitable for even the most fussiest of dogs. It helps to maintain ideal weight by enhancing fat metabolism through the provision of L-Carnitine. In addition, it helps to promote dental health by reducing tartar formulation. Smaller dogs have specific physiological characteristics (jaw size, bone structure, digestive systems) and therefore they benefit from specialised nutrition.
